CNN announced today that Jake Tapper‘s new weekday show The Lead will premiere at 4 PM on Monday March 18. In a statement, CNN said “the program will draw not only on Tapper’s deep knowledge of politics and national issues, but also seek to examine and advance stories across a wide range of topics that demonstrate his own curiosities and interests”. Tapper left ABC News in December to join CNN as its chief Washington correspondent and anchor of the new weekday program. Federico Quadrani, formerly of MSNBC, serves as executive producer. Tapper made his hosting debut on CNN at 10 PM on February 7, fronting the documentary An American Hero: The Uncommon Valor Of Clint Romesha. The doc averaged 588,000 viewers with 145,000 in the adults 25-54 demographic.
